A monster of a Birthday

Here’s a card I made for my DD1’s Boyfriend.The image is a freebie I picked up at Bugaboo Stamps a while back,printed onto ivory cardstock and coloured with AquaMarkers and a water brush.White gel pen was added to whiten his eyes and teeth plus the highlights on the balloon.You can just make out the Glossy Accents applied to the balloon too.The papers are K & Co and the cardstock is from my stash.I’ve used a Large Corner Rounder Punch and a Small one on the computer generated sentiment.Yup I made that one up myself!LOL.The Brads are Primary Making Memories and the string is cut from a price tag off an item of clothing.

Although I still think this looks like a kid’s card apparently he liked it!Having said that he is still a little like a kid – into his yo-yo’s and skateboarding.When do they ever grow up?!

    What a cute Monster…I think he looks like he’s partaken of a few beverages (of the alcoholic kind) and perfect for an 18yo. Thanks for joining in our Monsters challenge at Here Come The Boys, Donna
